13 Oct 2005 Hounded at Death by the Greenies

Not every news story has quotes this odd:
It is not enough to be a corpse anymore. Now, you have to be a politically correct corpse.
Yes, folks, you can spend up to $15,000 to be buried the eco-friendly way.
What I found most intriguing in this story about the “little boutique cemeteries with a social justice component” is the brief mention that embalming is done by a freelance embalmer named “Dead Ed” who works on — believe it or not — a bicycle.
Others, however, may be more interested in learning more about $5,000 eco-friendly coffins made of recycled newspaper and non-toxic glue. To a greenie, paradise. To me, peewee art gone grotesque.
